Black & White & Delicious

I am not the biggest cake fan in the world. I rarely have a craving for a slice or two but at times they taste so good. Birthdays are one thing but I can’t remember me going to a cafe or restaurant and choosing a nice slice as my desert as my first choice.

However I do have a sweet tooth and I love chocolate in all forms including in cakes. So even if cake is not high up on my list, I do enjoy the occasional indulgence. I remember last year while out on a date at an hotel’s plush lounge bar, I asked my date if she wanted ice cream and she did. The hotel didn’t have any for some reason but they recommended their cake slices. And what we had were vancho cake slices, which were really good.

Vancho is basically a cake which has mix of vanilla, white & black chocolate according this recipe I just read online. And this makes for a favourite desert for most people. Today was my mom’s birthday and along with a light dinner, I ordered 3 slices of vancho cake for her, my dad and me. And they were really good. Vancho, you are now one of my favourite things to eat.

A Change In Shift

Well it’s the start of another work week. Not a good start though since I woke up with a bad headache. I think it’s mostly sinusitis related since I have battled a stuffy nose for the past couple of days before the weekend. I have had a beer on Saturday and Sunday night but not enough to get me having a hangover and stuff.

This week though I am doing an earlier shift than usual, 12:30 pm to 9:30 pm which means I can sleep when it’s still dark and still night! That is good for me and hopefully I can get this shift for the next 2 weeks. I will start to feel more human again.

I was keeping myself alive with coffee and more coffee. But this week it will be a lot better. Now if only this blasted headache could just go away!
